After all the attention our first Intern Bootcamp received from the community, we decided to host yet another one. Again, rather than finding an intern to run our errands for a temporary time, our primary goal was to discover young talents and give them a chance to improve themselves toward becoming the tech leaders of the future. And we do that by not telling what to do. But by trusting them enough to put their skills to the test by actually working on projects and not just observing.
Our much-awaited 2nd Intern Bootcamp had 50 brilliant attendees carefully selected out of 400 applicants. And together, we worked on challenging tasks and projects meticulously designed to help us discover the right fit to become the future developer, designer, or project manager of our team. In the end, we ended up selecting a brilliant and promising young intern to join us.
After an unfortunately lengthy pause due to the pandemic, we finally organized our long-awaited 8th Intern Bootcamp. It didn’t last long until we realized how much we missed meeting the young and talented people of our community and working with them side by side on various projects to discover the brilliant new minds to join the Atolye15 Team.The event took place at İzmir Originn with the participation of 50 aspiring developers, UI/UX designers, and project managers. As always, we started off by informing our future interns more about our team as well as the frontend, backend, design, and PM projects they would work on at the Bootcamp.
At our 7th Intern Bootcamp, we got together with the young talents of our community once again and had a day full of workshops where we shared our years’ worth of know-how, helped our future interns tackle various tasks, and got the chance to meet these aspiring developers, designers, and project managers on a more personal level. With more than 400 applications received, this year’s Bootcamp drew great interest within our ecosystem. However, we could only narrow it down to 40 to join us at this event. No matter how much we’d like to meet everyone, we only want to have a small circle of candidates we’re capable of managing.
Each Intern Bootcamp we organize attracts a great deal of attention from young and brilliant minds in pursuit of showcasing their talents to become a part of the Atolye15 team. And the 6th one of these much-anticipated community events was no exception either. With 50 attendees who were carefully chosen out of more than 500 applicants, our 6th Intern Bootcamp hosted a total of 4 workshops. And during these workshops, our team guided the attendees and meticulously took note of how they worked as they completed their projects.
Over the years, our Intern Bootcamps have become the center of attention for our community’s young talents who want to get off on the right foot while just getting started in the industry. Because Atolye15 is more than just a workplace. It’s a school that nurtures anyone who’s willing to learn and carries them to new heights.
